Aboriginal Day Celebrated in Abbotsford

Honouring 10,000+ Year History

Aboriginal Day in Abbotsford was celebrated with Pow wow drumming, storytelling, Salish weaving and other crafts, face painting, free food and more. Over 2000 people joined us in Thunderbird Memorial Square for National Aboriginal Day festivities.

National Aboriginal Day gives us an opportunity to understand and share recent histories of Aboriginal People in Canada and to address racism and discrimination Aboriginal people have faced and continue to face. This event is about communities coming together in partnership as an act of reconciliation with the work of a joint committee from The Aboriginal Communities, the City, Abbotsford School District, Library, Reach, Literacy Matters Abbotsford, other businesses, sponsors and community service providers. And most importantly, this celebration is an opportunity to showcase the achievements, culture and beauty of Aboriginal people. “This is medicine for the people with greater impact with partnerships,” Dr. Gwen Point.
